Playa de las Americas

The beach resort of Tenerife is Playa de las Américas. This beach resort in southwest Tenerife is designed entirely on the drawing board. There is nothing authentic about this place, often simply referred to as Las Américas. Playa de las Américas therefore has no village center. It is a collection of hotels, apartments, bars, restaurants, shops and discos. Playa de las Américas will therefore never be praised for its beauty. Compared to some other beach resorts, the city stands out better than its competitors. This is partly due to a large-scale approach to the place at the beginning of this century. Some of the oldest and most dilapidated accommodations have been demolished and replaced by new ones. If you are looking for a hotel on Playa de las Americas, you will increasingly come across beautifully renovated hotels. But don’t forget to see our apartments! The pedestrian promenade that already starts in neighboring Los Cristianos has been renovated and provided with new greenery where necessary. You can walk all the way from Playa de Los Cristianos to the end of Costa Adeje via Playa de las Américas. This kilometer-long walking tour takes you along various beaches and a large number of shops and restaurants. Be careful when you walk there, because cyclists also use this promenade and sometimes shoot at high speed. The pedestrian promenade that already starts in neighboring Los Cristianos has been renovated and provided with new greenery where necessary. You can walk all the way from Playa de Los Cristianos to the end of Costa Adeje via Playa de las Américas. This kilometer-long walking tour takes you along various beaches and a large number of shops and restaurants. Be careful when you walk there, because cyclists also use this promenade and sometimes shoot at high speed. The pedestrian promenade that already starts in neighboring Los Cristianos has been renovated and provided with new greenery where necessary. You can walk all the way from Playa de Los Cristianos to the end of Costa Adeje via Playa de las Américas. This kilometer-long walking tour takes you along various beaches and a large number of shops and restaurants. Be careful when you walk there, because cyclists also use this promenade and sometimes shoot at high speed.

Neighborhoods

You can divide Playa de las Américas into different areas. The least attractive part is actually still near the shopping centers Veronicas 1, 2 and 3. This is the area where the core of the nightlife is located. The bars here are mainly populated by British people. At the end of the evening this regularly results in vomiting young people, noisy groups and even fights. This area does not have the best reputation. Years ago there were sometimes programs on RTL5 that focused on the nightlife in this part of Tenerife. The better parts of Playa de las Américas can be found at both ends. On one side Playa de Fañabé, on the other side the southern tip of Las Américas, which almost seamlessly merges into  Los Cristianos. Costa Adeje including Playa del Duque is the youngest part. Some see Costa Adeje as part of Playa de las Américas, which is why it is included here.

catering industry

The catering industry has also undergone a metamorphosis over the years. In the past, the offer mainly consisted of cheap international food such as pizza, cutlets and moderate cuts of beef. You still see tents like this, but there are also more and more things that look at what the tourist actually wants. This has meant that you can now enjoy tapas in many places, but also that there is an increase in eateries where the culinary level is slightly higher than average. Good food is more possible than in the past in Playa de las Américas. If you fancy an ordinary quick bite, you can also go to branches of McDonalds, Burger King and Subway.

Visit Playa de las Americas or not?

Some will find Playa de las Américas a vacation paradise while others detest the place because of the mass tourism that is patently present here. If we seem as objective as possible, Playa de las Américas is more worthwhile as a total picture than a number of other resorts on Tenerife such as Puerto de la Cruz, Costa del Silencio, Las Galletas, Playa Paraiso and Alcála. Also compared to Playa del Inglés on the island of Gran Canaria where it is often compared to, we find Playa de las Américas more attractive. This is mainly due to the long pedestrian promenade, making it quite easy to visit the different parts or to continue walking to Costa Adeje or Los Cristianos. Playa de las Américas is therefore very favorable. You can also choose from different beaches. Our preference would be Playa del Duque Costa Adeje, Playa Fañabé or the small beach in front of the luxury hotel Europe Villa Cortés. This is a beautiful beach that is also accessible to non-guests. The beach is located at a natural swimming pool.
